Mirror puzzle
Needs a date and time
Who wants to help me make a solar cooker, joining these tiny pieces of glass mirror to these satellite dishes? It's like a jigsaw puzzle with nice dreams by it, but way more boring, time consuming, with gloves and respirators, and sitting down in a ventilated area that'll probably instigate dressing warm. Aprovecho Research Center in Oregon I think still has their report on the internets that stated they were able to boil a bit over a gallon of water in a bit over an hour, in August, with a similar design w/ like twice as much reflective surface area as what my array would be. Their one dish had a 6' diameter and an insulated cooking compartment.
